Vatican may join EU anti-terrorism body

Vatican City’s chief prosecutor, Nicola Picardi, said the increased threat of international terrorism required new forms of cooperation among countries.

In October, the Vatican successfully joined Interpol, and the Vatican’s Gendarmeria has been attending meetings of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe since 2006, he said.

While only 492 people live in Vatican City, some 18 million pilgrims and tourists pass through Bernini’s splendid colonnade to enter St. Peter’s Basilica or visit the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican Museums each year.
